Al-Arish – Ma’an – Egyptian security forces said on Sunday that they discovered and seized a major weapons cache and arrested a suspected smuggler in near the border with the Gaza Strip.

Egyptian security officials said police stopped the suspect when he was driving in the area. The suspect, Ahmad Abu Maleeh, 30, from the Egyptian side of the city of Rafah, told interrogators that he had just driven another smuggler to tunnel in the area.

Security forces also discovered a tunnel in the same area, and confiscated what they said was a large quantity of firearms and ammunition. The officials said that the security presence in the area was increased as a result of the discovery.

Meanwhile, Israel informed Egypt that Israeli border guards arrested 32 African migrants who managed to cross the Sinai border into Israel, officials said. The Africans crossed south of the Kerem Shalom crossing point, Egyptian officials said.
